MSF fears French migrant camp closure

The international medical charity, MSF, has said that it is concerned the national government in France will try to close down a new refugee camp it has built with support from local government near the northern town of Dunkirk.

The camp opened on Monday and is housing more than a thousand migrants from Iraq and Iran, who had been living in squalid conditions in nearby woodland.

It is described as the first in France to meet international standards.
